Today was a good day. Jill came up to visit. Thanks for the gifts Jill. The pain is still bad, but controlled a little better. Then my mom, sister, and Ava came up to see me. We bought Ava an "I'm a big sister" shirt. My sister got her shot records for me "Thank You" and we got to take her to see the babies. She was so cute. She gave the the nurse the breast milk and said hi and bye to all the babies and said she loved them. She cried when we left the babies. Then we escaped and went out to dinner. shhhh When I came back to my room I sat on the evil pump for a while and got a entire 2cc of breast milk lol. Then at 9pm we went back to NICU and I GOT TO HOLD ANDREW. I held him for about 20 minutes his heart rate dropped into the 60's while I held him and he started to loose his body temp so I put him back. Needless to say he has been stable except for his heart rate dropping every once and a while. Jacob got taken off his ventilator today and was put on just nasal cannula. He only tolerated this for about and hour and was then put on B-Pap. I was told he might have to be put back on the ventilator but we will see. Logan is still on a ventilator but they have been slowly reducing the amount of pure oxygen he is own from 100% to 75% he is still stable. He is also under a light for elevated bilirubin and Jacob is too. I am suppose to be discharge tomorrow, but since I am expressing such small amount of breast milk and they are begging me for it up there I am going to stay at Ronald McDonald house until I can get a good supply for them. They still need lots of prayers but they are doing very well for 2 day old preemies. Thank you everyone for your prayers and support.


  1. Jen,
    You and the babies have been on my mind quite a lot the last few days. I know this time is hard, but hopefully not long from now this will seem like a faded memory and you will be chasing around three busy boys.
    Please let me know if there is anything I can do.
